I don’t really need anymore dolls, but…

I regularly go into the Target website to see what is new in the Our Generation line.  I’ll admit it, I’m not a big fan of Our Generation dolls for various reasons, the main one for a while being their “deer in the headlights” look in their eyes.  I am happy to see they have changed them a bit and they are much more attractive.  Their wigs are not the greatest either, but you could always shave them bald and attach a better quality wig that has a wig cap.  However…this doll really caught my eye for all sorts of reasons!!

Here’s Kacy!

I love this idea of a doll with a removable prosthetic leg!  And she’s so pretty!

 

She has a cute outfit too.  If you go to the Target website, there is a video that shows how her leg is finished without the prosthetic.


Has anyone seen this doll in person?  I just wonder if she is as pretty in person as she is on the website.  She’s not in stock at any stores near me just yet, I have a feeling she hasn’t been available for very long.

This also makes me wonder if they might do dolls with other prosthetic limbs.  I love the idea and I find it interesting that they’ve managed to do this way before American Girl, even though AG has had someone doing customizations of dolls this way.  Wouldn’t be fun if they made additional accessories too for this doll–a running set with a running blade would be really cool!

If you would like to check her out on the Target website and see the video, here’s the link:

She is also available in an African American version, as Suzee:

My Milkshake Brings All The Dolls To The Yard…🎵🎶🎤

Sorry for that musical lapse there…I couldn’t resist.  Why you ask?  Well, this is why!

Yep, the Our Generation Retro “Make A Milkshake” set!  When I saw these on another site, I thought it would be a cute thing to have for the bakery/cafe and I was super excited to actually come across it at a Target store.  (This was a while ago, I haven’t been in a Target in a year, but this item is still available on their website!)

Here are all the parts out of the box, super cute!  I love these little sets, always nice to have a few little extras even if you already have some of the items.  You get the machine, a milkshake (looks like strawberry, yum!), a spoon and a straw dispenser.

So, here’s something interesting, I’m trying to figure out what this circle is for on the top.  I’m wondering if the original thought was to make this so it actually spun the milkshake containers.  Anyone else know if milkshake machines have this on the top or am I right in my suspicion?  It wouldn’t be the first time I’ve come across an Our Generation item with a spot that looked like the original idea was to make it mechanical.

The milkshake tumblers are removable which I was happy about, at first I wasn’t sure they came off.

On the bottom is a recessed spot that hooks over the blue tabs on the machine and you press down.  You do have to be rather careful with these though, they are tight!  When they are inserted, you can spin the tumblers around like you are making a milkshake.

Overall a really cute set with lots of play possibilities.  I can’t wait to do the new and improved bakery/cafe now that they have a shake machine and a soda machine, along with some other goodies I’ve picked up.  If this darned pandemic was just over!!!

Christmas Loot!

Belated Happy New Year everybody!  Hope you all had a wonderful holiday, even if it was a little bit messed up.  I got some really cool stuff for Christmas, would you like to see?

I got my very own pie iron for using at campfires, how cool is this?  My favorite is one made with peanut butter and jelly, and my other is one with apple pie filling in it.  Do you have a favorite?

I also got a new sleeping bag!!  It is very comfy, I like that it has a built in pillow.

All this camping stuff was exciting, but here’s my favorite present–my very own tent!!!

I can’t wait to go camping now!  I’ve been talking about a backyard campout with Allie, Wendy and Christine, now we have enough spaces for all four of us to sleep.  If Alex wants to join us, he has his own tent too.

I also got a very pretty coat and a cute t-shirt.

What did you get for Christmas?

_____________________________________________________________________

In case you are wondering where the tent and camping supplies came from, this was an American Girl set that was sold at Costco.  I managed to get one online (that’s a first for Costco), it sold out not too long after I got mine.  It’s not a huge set, but had things I was really hoping to get somehow.

The set includes the pie iron with a pie split in two, toasted marshmallows on a stick, a smore and two (yes two!) plates.  Also a camp fire which lights up and makes fire noises.  I haven’t tried it out yet because I didn’t feel like putting batteries in it only to have to take them out later.  I’m assuming it’s cool.

The sleeping bag is really cute, I do wish though they’d make these with a zipper in them so they were more realistic.   It’s long enough for the doll though.

The tent is well thought out in it’s assembly, the poles are self contained, you just have to adjust them so it stands up on it’s own. (It also gets the Sophie seal of approval.)

There is ample room for two sleeping bags, I took the one from the surf van and put it in beside the one included in the set.

The main entrance zips closed along with some velcro at the bottom.  There are built in elastics to hold it back when you want it open.  On the sides are vented windows that can be open or closed as well.

The back is netting, much like previous versions of this tent style.

There was also a coupon for a free book!  I need to look and see if the selection has changed since I first looked, it was almost sold out.

A cute set and I like the colors in it, they match both the surf van and the pop up camper!  I was never a big fan of the two My Life As tents I already had and passed them on to a young girl I knew who was just getting into 18 inch dolls.

One last thing…Mimi’s shirt.  As I was shooting these pics, I noticed something…

Do you see what’s wrong????  Weird.
